Upon request from the other thread I started, looking for consensus on the above 4 cars. Which one would you go for?
Following the launch of the BMW 4 Series Coupe and Convertible, the Gran Coupe (GC) is the third model to join the new BMW 4 Series. The 4 Series GC combines the sleek look of a two-door coupe with the functionality provided by four doors and expansive spaciousness, including a wide access luggage compartment of 480 litres, expandable to 1,300 litres, makes loading and unloading much easier. The 4 Series has exactly the same dimensions as the two-door coupe - measuring 4,638mm long, and sitting 1,825mm wide with a wheelbase of 2,810mm. However, the roof is 12mm higher, 112mm longer and gently stretched, allowing it to flow smoothly into the rear quarter panels and boot lid. This extended roofline provides more headroom in the interior, along with added comfort. The boot lid is equipped as standard with an automatic opening and closing mechanism for maximum convenience. Up front, the 4 Series coupe and Gran Coupe are identical and share typical BMW design features like the double-kidney grille, dual round headlights and the large air intake in the front apron. The standard model variant, plus three optional equipment packages and the M Sport package, leave no wishes unfulfilled for drivers wanting a special look and feel. The BMW Individual program offered includes options for creating an exclusive vehicle with special leather interior packages, exterior colours and 19-inch light-alloy wheels. The 4 Series GC offers a choice of five powerful, cultivated and efficient engines. The high end is represented through the 435i's six-cylinder in-line 3.0-litre petrol engine delivering 306bhp. The BMW 428i GC and 420i GC are equipped with four-cylinder engines which deliver 245bhp and 184bhp, respectively. Two four-cylinder diesel engines are also offered, starting with the 420d GC which delivers 184bhp and sprints to 100km/h in only 7.7 seconds (7.5 seconds with sport automatic transmission) with an average fuel consumption between 4.7 to 4.9L/100km. The engine in the BMW 418d GC has an output of 143bhp and consumes up to 4.7L/100km. At model launch, the BMW 428i and 420d can be optionally equipped with BMW xDrive all-wheel drive technology. The standard variant features a six-speed manual transmission, but all engines can be combined with the optional eight-speed Steptronic or eight-speed sport Steptronic transmissions, which also feature manual shifting using paddles on the steering wheel.
